August 2007 Reads

Wow, I can't believe the end of August is already here!! Before I head to Alaska, here's the official August list:

34. Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood (4.25/5)

35. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy (3.75/5)

36. Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult (4.5/5)

37. Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquirel (3/5)

38. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson (3/5)

39. His Excellency: George Washington by Joseph J. Ellis (2.5/5)

I just realized that only three out of six of these books are challenge books! Hmmm, I guess that's why I'm behind...well, only in Decades and Book Awards challenges. Oh well! I'll blame it on Taos and the move to Dallas. :)

Total Books: 6
Total Pages: 1,815 (oops!!)

What a great and ecclectic list of books!!

Have a great trip!

Trish said...

Thanks. The trip was great, but I am GLAD to be home!

Have you read Cat's Eye yet? I started reading it and then put is aside for something else; I'm wondering if I should give it more credit.

*Jeane - I did read it (the link on this post takes you to the review), but I didn't like it as much as some of her other books--The Handmaid's Tale and The Blind Assassin. It took me a little bit to get into this story whereas with the other two I was more or less immediately drawn in.
